Notice for MacBook Pro users

This was sent out by our IT department today

Dear ,
As some of you may be aware, a majority of airlines have begun to ban travelers from boarding airplanes in possession of a 15” Mac Book Pro laptop sold between September 2015 and February 2017.
Apple has notified users that the battery in those affected laptops may overheat, causing potential swelling and/or igniting. As you may remember, this is similar to the Samsung Note ban a year or so ago for similar battery overheating issues.
The IT department at has verified all of the serial numbers for laptops purchased through IT, and there is no verified assets that are on the recall list. That being said, some travelers may have purchased Mac Books through a local vendor or dealer, and IT may not have all of the information available to verify if your particular Mac Book Pro is on the recall list.
You will find a link to the online verification tool that will allow you to verify if your particular model is part of the recall list.
We encourage all travelers to verify if their Mac Book Pro is part of the list. You can do so by entering in your serial number.
To view the link you have to Register or Login

Might be useful to someone here.

I recently came back from Valencia and easyJet held the flight until some people had to verify what was in their luggage in the hold, I think this was the same issue as I heard something about a laptop.
